â†µâ‡¥Paulo Ferreira (pictured) says Portugal’s players will refuse to grow moustaches for the World Cup. â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥Portugal fans have held up banners asking the players to grow moustaches as a gesture of solidarity, reminiscent of the way Romania’s squad bleached their hair in 1998. â†µâ‡¥â†µâ‡¥
â†µâ‡¥But Chelsea full back Ferreira said: ‘I don’t think so, I could never see myself with a mustache. It would only make us figures of fun.’ â†µâ‡¥â†µ
â†µYou know what will also make you a figure of fun? Clunky phrasing. I kid, of course, but there's so much to embrace about sporting the mustache. Even if you come up short in South Africa, you'll forever be a champion in the hearts of the American Mustache Institute. Or, y'know, if there's one in Portugal. â†µâ†µ
